Nothing actually changed balance wise in favor of BBs. This event has started a craze.

Um, what? Wrong. OWSF got removed. Massive nerf to DDs and cruisers. i.e. huge buff to BBs.

IJN torpedoes got buffed so now BBs sail in huge packs relying on safety in numbers.

Pretty sure this is sarcasm, but if it's not - IJN torpedoes still have the longest reaction times in the game, so....

It's not, actually. Well the part about the buff, at least. They were *slightly* buffed, with decreased visibility for certain torpedo types at high tiers.

I'd agree, but I didn't see this type of discrepancy in the queue until the Sink the Bismarck campaign yesterday, of which there is very little push to actually play a BB to complete as 2/3 of all missions you can use any ship you wish.

You think thats a lot of BBs in cue, I saw 120+ last night. 

There were so many BBs in game I was firing torps with my eyes closed and still getting hits. 

:trollface:

There is a bump in the BB population because of the event, but while you were gone DDs received numerous nerfs because BB population was getting too high, culminating with 0.6.3.

 

The phrase highlighted in blue is not a typo; that's what they said, and what they did.

It is not sarcasm. Some of the IJN torpedoes did receive buffs.

Very funny River and m3.  The clear intent of my post was to point out that Shimakaze & friends are still dumpster fires.

A battleship event started last night along with WG releasing the Hood for sale. 

 

It has nothing to do with any balance changes because if it did the queue would have looked like this since 6.3 dropped in March.

The Shima and the other Tier 10 DDs are all doing okay if you remove the Khab.

Actually, it was Horation satire and social commentary. Go look them up. :P

 

I quit the game after all the DDs nerfs and the proliferation of the horribly broken radar mechanic. I pop back occasionally for a ranked season then disappear again.

 

I was just shocked to see the number of BBs so high, but I figured it was probably event related. Just seemed funny to see that after all the references back in the day to World of Battleships, given all the nerfs to other ship types, yet non-stop buffs to BBs.

Stealth firing.

 

The removal of a stupid mechanic wasn't what made BBs 'magically better'.

 

A nerf to another Ship just nerfs that ship, it doesn't cause another ship which is not that ship to perform better.

 

*shrug* most ships needed to be nerfed because Concealment and torpedo soup were very literally ruining the high tier section of the game.

 

As for this? It's just Event+Hood came out.

Oh please, OWSF benefited very few DD's and cruisers to begin with, the nerf didn't matter all that much.

​You don't think that removal of the mechanic resulted in less overall damage inflicted on BBs by DDs, and as a continued encouragement to play BBs?

 

My BB main meter just pegged.

Been a DD main for 6 months now, and nope, didn't do anything to my DD game play.

I mean, I totally didn't drop gun hate in a tier 9 match with 168 gun hits. I mean, that nerf really hurt me so much.
